washington, where 3rez obama's choice for defense secretary remains in limbo. chuck hagel's nomination so hold for a week while congress is in recess. what's all the drama involving this vote? david gregory is moderator of "meet the press". good morning. >> good morning. >> a republican standing against his nomination here. i think we're used to republicans standing up against the president. why in this case which it seems to be a foregone conclusion that he will eventually get through? >> a lot of republicans don't like him. don't take my word for it. that's what john mccain said on thursday, saying there's a lot of ill-will over republicans over hagel's criticism of president bush and iraq and the surge and all the rest. and as a result they're jamming them up. i don't think it ultimately keeps him from being defense secretary. but it does weaken him, as well as his own performance at his confirmation hearing, which left a lot of people disappointed as well. >> and there is some discussion that this delay might allow his opponents to have more ammunition against him. any reason to be co
